The Girl with the Louding Voice with Abi Daré

Wednesday 13 October 2021

At fourteen, Adunni dreams of getting an education and giving her family a more comfortable home in her small Nigerian village.

Instead, Adunni’s father sells her off to become the third wife of an old man. When tragedy strikes in her new home, Adunni flees to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where she becomes a house-girl to the cruel Big Madam, and prey to Big Madam’s husband. But despite her situation continuously going from bad to worse, Adunni refuses to let herself be silenced.

And one day, someone hears her.

Join Abi Daré to discuss one of the most loved books of the year!
